    Because it's cold outside:

    The A6000 is a marvellous little APS-C camera with it’s super fast AF.
    I would never have managed to capture close up this (fidgety) robins eye sharp at f1.8 with the 55mm on my slow by comparison AF A7R, he was hopping all over the place!...Taken yesterday.

    My compliments! I know how difficult these captures are.

    You must have learned how to make use of the AF of the A6000 well, Barry.

    Re: Fun with A6000

    This uncropped image was the best that I managed to achieve on the day, also at 55mm F1.8 as close and as low as the 24mp camera and lens (+ Robin ) would allow me to get!
    Stacked in two halves, top & bottom...It’s the kind of image which could easily be turned into a Christmas card.

    Re: Fun with A6000

    Guy, are you still using an a6000?

    The current sale makes it a pretty attractive experiment...

    Also - is the kit zoom worth the extra cash? Reviews seem to say no. I've got the FE 35, 55, and 24-70 which I could slap on there.

    Re: Fun with A6000

    The kit lens is a bargain, but only if you need it. It's VERY small and has OSS. The quality is about the same as the a7 kit lens. The only thing I don't like about it is the power zoom, but then I don't use if for video.

    May I ask what post processing was used on the image? Was it HDR? Any other post process filters?

    Thank you, Vivek! I have to say it's not my original intention to make it look like a painting , but a couple others have the same impressions as well.

    Nik HDR and Nik Sharpener, though I was definitely not shooting for the crunchy HDR look.

    Just a question for A6000 users.
    If I use a Leica M lens, do I have the possibility to get magnified eye view in the finder?

    Yes, it's available with any manual lens. (Can be invoked anytime, really.)

    Some images of and by my new (1980's vintage) Sigma 400mm f5.6 MF lens on my Sony a6000 body. I LOVE long telephoto, and having a 600mm equivalent in a small package is just insanely sweet!

    Re: Fun with A6000

    I borrowed an A6000 and took it with my 70-200mm f4 to Safari Park to see how well the AF works on BIF. Actually, I shot ducks taking off from a pond. The A6000 sure is fast! Here is a short sequence of three shots:





    It rained about 15 mins. after I took these shots, so it was dark and overcast, forcing me to shoot at iso 3200, f4.5, 1250th/sec.

    Re: Fun with A6000

    For my recent China trip I rented a Zeiss 16-70/4 ZA from Lens Rental (good experience) and used it almost exclusively on my A6000. It was a test run for an upgrade from my NEX 5N and Contax G primes that I have been using. For vacation snaps like these the combo make sense - except for the price tag on the Zeiss lens. On the other hand I missed the speed advantage of the primes and I was not overwhelmed by the IQ of the A6000/Zeiss zoom combo.

    The IQ issue could be more of operator error than lack of gear performance. I took raw + jpeg files but have only looked at the jpegs. I will need to obtain software and training before the raw files will be of much use to me. The following two sets are just to show the versatility of the combo - not pixel peeping. Lens Rental gives you the option of buying rather than returning rented gear - I returned the lens. I hope that I can find a somewhat equivalent zoom from Sony, Sigma, etc… that costs substantially less.

    Thanks for reviving this thread Mike, didn't know it existed

    Got an A6000 since late last year, loving it in addition to my NEX-6

    Let's start with a picture honoring something that looked like my first camera (Leica IIIf), but that's probably infinitely more valuable.
